A few days ago, I got a message from a fellow vegan asking if I’d ever checked out La Cosecha, the restaurant at downtown’s Cesar Chavez Plaza. I had not, so I made a point of heading over there for lunch on Friday. Thanks for the suggestion, Kathryn!
Aside from the chips and salsa or guacamole (which is vegan if you have them leave off the cotija), there was only one vegan option on the lunch menu, but it was a good one — tacos de papa. This plate comes with three tacos, corn tortillas filled with Yukon potatoes, poblano sofrito, pickled onion, and radish. There is a non-vegan version of these tacos, so make sure to let the staff know that you want your tacos made vegan. They were really good, and even better when I added in a little of the salsa and guacamole that I ordered with my chips!
La Cosecha has a couple of other vegan items listed on their brunch and dinner menus. For brunch, they offer tostada de Cosecha, two tostadas topped with beans, avocado, habanero salsa, jicama slaw, pickled onions, and tomatoes. In addition to the tacos de papa, the dinner menu also offers enchiladas de calabacita, three enchiladas filled with sautéed squash, zucchini, and corn.
La Cosecha is located at 917 Ninth Street, and their phone number is 916-970-5354. Their website address is http://lacosechasacramento.com/, and their Facebook page can be found at https://www.facebook.com/La-Cosecha-Sacramento-170337176671609/.
